What was the point?

By the way, those wondering how the country is in so much debt, take a look at that list of agencies, seems like most are redundant and cover the same group of people just with a different name.

And this clown uh "Chief" pretty much p!sssed on the Constitution. As a former law enforcement officer I find his ideas appalling. He can claim all the "expertise" he want, but his ultimate requirement is to uphold the Constitution and the laws of his state.

From November 2011 to November 2012, an estimated 6.6 million firearm transactions occurred without a background check. Up to 40 percent of firearm transactions occur through private individuals rather than licensed gun dealers. Allowing 40 percent of those acquiring guns to bypass background checks is like allowing 40 percent of airline passengers to board a plane without going through airport security

Seven of our nine groups, including the largest organizations among us, also support a ban on
assault weapons and Senator Feinstein’s legislation.
Federal law prohibits dangerous individuals, such as convicted felons and those with mental health disqualifiers, from possessing firearms. While background checks are required for purchases through federally licensed gun dealers, no check is required for private sales, such as those through Internet postings, print ads or gun shows.

The organizations in the National Law Enforcement Partnership to Prevent Gun Violence are united in urgently calling on Congress to:

Require background checks for all firearm purchasers;

Ensure that prohibited purchaser records in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), are up-to-date and accurate;

and Limit high capacity ammunition feeding devices to ten rounds.

We urgently need Congress to address the rising epidemic of gun violence. Law enforcement leaders support the President’s comprehensive approach, which includes enhancing safety at educational institutions and addressing mental health issues. But on behalf of my colleagues across the nation, I am here today to tell you that we are long overdue in strengthening our nation’s gun laws. Doing so must be a priority for Congress

In a one-week period in 2011, the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF) found that gun crime in six cities cost more than $38 million, and in the year 2010 cost the entire country more than $57 billion.

More than 30 homicides occur in America each day. Two-thousand children, ages 18 and under, die of firearm-related deaths in the U.S. every year. In 2011, for the first time in 14 years, firearms were the leading cause of death for police officers killed in the line of duty. In just the two-week period after the Newtown massacre, six police officers were killed and 10 injured in 12 separate shootings.

CAPITOL HILL -- During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Wednesday on Capitol Hill about how to prevent gun violence, Senior Fellow of the Independent Women’s Forum Gayle Trotter was loudly heckled by anti-gun advocates in the crowd after she suggested women need firearms to protect young children in their homes.

"An assault weapon in the hands of a young woman defending her babies at her home becomes a defense weapon,” Trotter said as jeers erupted. “Guns are the great equalizer during a violent confrontation.”

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse attempted to lecture Trotter about the type...
